Hooray! the start of the CSA season is here....and y'all know that means strawberries and greens :) Despite the cool weather last week we finally saw the strawberries start to ripen just in time for your first share this week. Our friends at Red Tree Mushroom have just started harvesting Fresh Shiitakes as well....so get those in the extras page! We are already well into the planting season here. That means most of the summer crops are started already and some in the ground. And if you can believe it we have already prepared the soil for some fall crops like sweet potatoes (lots of planning involved here). Sweet potatoes from last year make an appearance in this first box as well, and they are sweet and delicious after being stored properly this winter. We hope you are excited as we are for the season....looking forward to much bounty!

About the farm
We are a seventh generation family farm, raising certified organic vegetables for CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and Farmers Markets. We also raise pastured chicken, 100% grassfed beef and offer pastured pork. We raise food with the intention of taking care of the land: growing healthy soil, healthy plants, healthy animals, and healthy people. Since we are a seventh generation family farm, caring for the land and soil for our children and the next seven generations is at the forefront of our farming practices. We nourish the soil with compost from our farm, and other natural ways to bring nutrients and minerals back to the land to improve the health of the soil, land and crops. We work to maintain a balanced, healthy soil to help grow healthy plants and food. We see our farm as part of a larger community-- a network of people who are interdependent with each other. We grow healthy food for our family, friends and community.Go to farm profile
